Graduate Trainee | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 22 Jan 2015
Productive and sometimes redundant
A typical day starts off by walking in through the reception doors. The first couple of minutes normally entail looking through the news to catch up with what happened the previous night in order to get one up-to-speed. This is then followed by meetings as well as your day to day responsibilities which differ amongst teams. This is then followed by other peripheral things like coffee, meeting invites, water and smoke breaks if you smoke, lunch and other unidentifiable things. My lessons were that you need to be proactive, tenacious, patient and a prominent team worker to survive in the bank. There is a vast majority of personalities which requires one to adjust in order to be able to fit it. The company is run in a very different manner depending on the team. Some management is great and are very willing to help you understand the fundamental ins and outs of the bank. Others will commit to making time but will never pitch up for meetings. The processes are too long and some stakeholders are not willing to work and coordinate in a fair and reliable manner. The vast majority, however, are more than willing to send you to the right people who will teach you all that needs to be known on the job. In terms of coworkers, without pointing fingers, most of the teams were very helpful in keeping my hands busy as well as teach me the processes and everything within the bank. Others barely had time to help and or answer a couple of questions I had. Others would throw toys when

Enjoyable and Productive workplace
A typical day at Standard Bank starts off bright and early with a cup of coffee to ensure that the employees are wide awake and ready for the various tasks that they are required to complete throughout the day. Employees firstly check their emails, which notify them about any important tasks or duties which need to be fulfilled before the end of the day or week. One can then begin with the day's work, which includes attending a number of meetings, organising and managing the company's numerous projects and dealings, and so on. During my work experience at Standard Bank, I found my co-workers to be quite friendly and I was able to get along with and communicate with them with ease. I acquired a fair amount of knowledge and skills (mostly administrative and computer skills) whilst working there-I experienced some of the many pressures and issues that employees deal with on a daily basis, and the long working hours involved. I also learned that through hard work and dedication, employees are capable of absolutely anything. With such a mindset, an employee can become a valuable asset to the growth and further development of an organisation. The hardest part of the job was to get the work done within a limited amount of time and still ensure that it was done with the utmost precision. However, this was not impossible. It was simply a challenge I was willing to take on in order to better myself and learn more about the working environment. The most enjoyable part of the job

Verification Officer Origination | Pretoria, Gauteng | 18 Mar 2014
Very target/sales driven. Good benefits. Additional performance bonuses are also paid during the year (March). Good company to work for.
Work day starts at 08:00 - we have sign-on sheets which are checked daily. Any follow-ups which are required are done between 08:00 and 09:00. 09:00 we have a team production meeting and action plans set in place in terms of work load/obstacles/focus areas and a learning topic is set each day. Each team member has an opportunity to run the connect session. 9:30 - 16:15 - work orientated with hourly targets. These are set on big screen TV monitors which are on display so that staff can access whether their productivity is on track. Ensure queues are cleared. 16:15 - 16:30 : recap of daily work, updating of metrics - these are reviewed during daily connect session and continuous improvement ideas set in place to improve performance and business processess. What I've learned:- Great team player - you cannot survive in this type of environment of you're not. Flexibility - you need to be able to skip across jobs as per business requirements to ensure optimal capacity management i.t.o. staff. Management - clear direction is required to ensure correct results. Co-workers - we have an eclectic mix of people, combining a wide variety of cultres and backgrouds, however, we all adhere to one "culture" which is based on our company vision and values. Each job has it's own challenges - it's how quickly you can embrace change and overcome obstacles that make the difference between loving what you're doing and simply working for a salary.

A challening but rewarding place. Long hours, unstable in many areas and in other areas stagnated
A great organisation to work for if one resides in an area where people,culture and skills are valued. The organisation overall is in a state of transformation and many changes are happening, making ofr an exciting but also an unstable environment to work in. The work day is usually more than a 12 hour day, very little skills and assistance from staff and a lot of political pressures to do the work with broken systems, overly governed processes and little skilled resources. I learned that the current environment where people are unhappy, but scared to express their unhappiness, performance suffers a great deal and is not sustainanble in the long term. Areas where people are purposefully busy with work they see will result in the fulfilment of the vision and that they are also contributing while growing, they tend to deliver meaningful and quality work. Management needs attention and is mostly too involved in the deeper layers and operationally stuck in the "trenches". Not lifting their heads up to see the top of the mountain and to drive the strategy. Co-workers are very involved in political jossling. Skilled, but with mostly the wrong focus. The job is technicall very challenging, but great. The hardest part is the navigation through the complexities of the different systems, the influencing of people to get the job done and the more than usual communication layers to navigate through. The most enjoyable part is the achievement of results in an envir

Productive New Beginnings
I was introduced to the courier company through an agency. I have never worked for a logistics or courier company before. This was my first time. We were an amount of six new people introduced to night shift from 06:00pm and we did not know when the shift ended.We were trained in the vaults where the position read admin. However we were scanning in phones and cards in envelopes to their different destinations. As time went by we were only two people left as night shift was no joke. Only the bravest survived. As time went by I realised that each vault had a different bank they were presenting and that determined the shift. They were all night shift accept one where there was night shift and day shift. Everyone finished they own work. Night shift did not leave work for day shift and day shift did not leave work for night shift. We would end up having night or day shift staff there to complete the days work. There was no cellphones or money or food allowed inside. We were wearing grey coats and left our bags in a locker at the entrance. They arranged access for us with our right hand index finger. The salary was rewarding and something to look forward to. However we also worked Saturdays from 08:00am till 18:00pm at times. I applied upstairs at the outbound contact centre and I was successfull. The shift we worked started from 08:00am till 18:00pm or sometimes till 19:00pm if we had high call volumes. We signed an open contract where you would receive an sms in the evening conf

Posibilidad de crecimiento profesional y personal en un ambiente laboral óptimo
Ambiente de trabajo que se desarrolla creando lazos de amistad, trabajando en equipo; pero respetando el cargo, el trabajo y las responsabilidades de cada uno. Todos los días se requiere dar lo mejor de nosotros para poder alcanzar los objetivos individuales y por sobre todo los del grupo porque aún perteneciendo a diferentes sectores dentro de la misma entidad se necesita de cada compañero. El día laboral se inicia con la atención al público de clientes nuevos y/o existentes ya sea para consultas de productos que ya poseen o bien en la solicitud de algún otro nuevo. Mientras transcurre la mañana, si es posible, se comienza con los llamados telefónicos en la búsqueda de nuevos clientes o para la fidelización de los existentes. Luego a la tarde, después del almuerzo, se continúa con la venta telefónica de nuevos productos, la carga de los trámites obtenidos y también en la resolución de problemas en los productos de los clientes que así lo solicitaron. En mi caso en particular, también debía aprobar las operaciones crediticias de mis compañeros y llevar además el control de las ventas diarias, semanales y mensuales mediante planillas que le servían al grupo para tener conocimiento de las ventas de cada uno y también para confeccionar luego el informe de ventas semanal o mensual cuando el gerente lo solicitaba.
